When Kate Bowman temporarily moves to her grandmother’s Missouri farm with her husband and baby son, she learns that the lessons that most enrich our lives often come unexpectedly. The family has given Kate the job of convincing Grandma Rose, who’s become increasingly stubborn and forgetful, to move off her beloved land and into a nursing home. But Kate knows such a change would break her grandmother’s heart.

An historic literary event: the publication of a newly discovered novel, the earliest known work from Harper Lee, the beloved, best-selling author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning classic To Kill a Mockingbird. Originally written in the mid-1950s, Go Set a Watchman was the novel Harper Lee first submitted to her publishers before To Kill a Mockingbird. Assumed to have been lost, the manuscript was discovered in late 2014.

Would you consider the audio edition of Go Set a Watchman to be better than the print version?

So great to list to this novel read by Reese Witherspoon.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Go Set a Watchman?

The baptismal scene where one of the children runs off to dress up and comes back looking like a clan member, only to introduce himself as the Holy Spirit!

Which scene was your favorite?

Scout and her candid talks in the final chapter with Uncle Jack and her father.

If you could take any character from Go Set a Watchman out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Atticus Finch, someone so bloodied by life, who in so many ways was the Watchman of Maycomb, even though Jean Louise questions this.

Any additional comments?

Thank you Harper Lee!
